Nissan has outfitted the Juke with even more go-fast goodies, and has announced that the new NISMO RS trim will sell for $26,930.

The NISMO RS gets its power from a 1.6-liter turbocharged four cylinder that is good for 215 hp in front-wheel drive manual models or 211 with the CVT. A revised exhaust along with some ECU changes help to give the Juke NISMO RS better throttle response, while front-wheel drive versions benefit from a limited slip-differential.

A six-speed manual is available, but only on front-drive models, while those who opt for all-wheel drive must settle for a CVT. Bumping up to all-wheel drive will also cost you, as that model will leave dealerships for $28, 930.

On the low end, a base Nissan Juke will run you $19,800, while a fully loaded Juke, before you get into the NISMO range, will cost $26,800.
